The first edition of Microbial Physiology achieved sales in excess of 5,700 copies (with strong US support) and earned the reputation of being the most up-to-date and concise introduction to the physiology of prokaryotic and eukaryotic microorganisms. This new edition maintains that reputation. Written primarily for undergraduate students in microbiology, the text offers a detailed description of the basic areas of microbial structure and metabolism and also covers the dynamic aspects of growth, control and development of microorganisms T There have been significant advances in the understanding of the eukaryotic genome and this new edition takes into account the implications of this for the biochemistry of morphogenesis in the microbial life cycle. Coverage of the new developments is supported by the addition of a large number of new illustrations. This revised and rewritten text is currently the only publication to offer comprehensive coverage of this subject at this level. Areas covered in the new edition include: Chemical cytology of the microbial cell; Growth and death; Substrate uptake and entry to the cell; Energy production; Monomer synthesis; Polymer synthesis and metabolism; Regulation; Morphogenesis.

Chemical cytology of the microbial cell; Population growth and death; Substrate uptake and entry to the cell; Energy production; Monomer synthesis; Polymer synthesis and metabolism; Regulation; Growth of individual cells; Morphogenesis and differentiation; Further reading; Glossary; Index
